Either Christmas has come early or Sony wants to make sure that you'll have some extra spending money when the holiday shopping season is in full swing, but there's a brand new promotion happening on the PlayStation Network.
Starbreeze Studios' ("Payday 2," "Syndicate") experimental twin-stick adventure-puzzler gets a wider release.
The PlayStation Network is quickly becoming the go-to home for beloved indie game ports - both for console and handhelds. From "Thomas Was Alone" to "Mutant Blobs Attack!!!," "Sound Shapes" to "Retro City Rampage," Sony's PSN has provided its gamers with some of the best indie games of the past few years. This week they add one more name to their ever-growing list as indie dev Mossmouth's "Spelunky" makes the move to the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, with some help from BlitWorks. Originally released for PCs back in 2008, the title quickly became a hit, and eventually saw an enhanced release on the Xbox Live Arcade in 2012, and now the game is finally landing on Sony's platforms. This release also signifies "Spelunky"'s first handheld release, allowing gamers to get their exploration in on the go.
Indie developer Coffee Stain Studios today released "Sanctum 2" for PC and Xbox 360. The follow-up to the team's first tower-defense, first-person shooter hybrid sees players taking on the role of an elite soldier whose been tasked with protecting oxygen-producing cores from hordes of alien attackers. Sounds fun, right?
This morning, Rockstar announced that the gory most dangerous game would be coming to PSN. It'll be hanging out in the PS2 Classics section starting May 14th for $9.99, about ten years after its initial release on Sony's last console.
In the game, you "step back into the shoes of James Earl Cash, a Death Row inmate playing that most dangerous game of kill-or-be-killed at the mercy of the maniacal Lionel Starkweather."
A Korean Ratings board classification for something called "Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara" has fueled speculation that Capcom will unveil Xbox 360 and PS3 ports of its pair of D&D beat-em-ups during PAX East.

In anticipation for the impending release of “Bit.Trip Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien” -- impending as in tomorrow -- Gaijin Games have released a new trailer to drum up one last burst of frothy excitement.
The first “Runner” was part of the original “Bit. Trip” series that started winning hearts and minds on WiiWare a few years ago, marrying rhythm and platforming mechanics with a purposefully stripped down 8-bit visual style. The basic mechanics seem similar in “Runner2” -- Commander Video is still running, jumping, and sliding -- but the series’ aesthetic has seen a major overhaul.

505 Games released a new trailer today for “Terraria,” a sidescrolling survival-RPG not unlike “Minecraft” in 2D. The game was hugely successful on Steam in 2011 and will make its console debut on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network “in late February,” according to posts on the publisher’s Twitter account.
